... exhibit on another trip - and today was the day. It did remind me of our trip with Maui as one of the last places we took her. :-( as she came with Zach and me to visit my parents. Of course, that was also our last trip to their house outside Pinehurst. Given Maui no longer with us and parents sold their house, really glad we took the time for that vacation/road trip. Anyhow, the inside exhibits are free. While the place is relatively small, it is packed ...
... yourself you're exploring the ruins of an ancient Middle Earth type civilization, as there are passageways between the boulders and in some places they are stacked in such a way it does feel more like the ruins of the Incas or the Moorish castles in Sintra, Portugal... Hey... we can try at least... The hike stretches on and on. Miles with no open fields or human construction. After days of overdeveloped farmland and suburbs, it is a refreshing break. And ...
... Then the Cyclorama (a 360 degree painting with light-show) depicting the progress of the Battle of Gettysburg, then the museum. As usual I didn't have time enough in the museum. It was great.
Then we went to Dave and Jane's Crab House for dinner. As we walked in we saw people eating piles of crabs. Trays about 50cm by 30 or more piled 4 or 5 deep with blue crabs. All you can eat crabs and ...
... camps, the sheer number of men fighting and the loss of life in just the Gettysburg fight of three days, not to mention the 4 year fight.
The battle at Seminary Ridge took place on the first day of fighting, July 1, 1863. On this building is a cupola in which General Buford utilized to look out over the nearby fields to help in directing his ...
... you need people to come and consider a stroll and a shop on Main Street as a fun thing to do.
There's a farmer's market going on--complete with a live country singer playing for tips. Frederick feels a bit out of the "Bible Belt" not as many churches crammed in here. But the ones that are here are quite impressive, with their towering spires. I parked my car 22 kms away, and now I'm kind of regretting that... if I hadn't parked so far away I could spend ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Garden Inn Gettysburg
This place was a delight to stay at. Great friendly staff that new the area well. Large bright lobby that is very comfortable to sit in. They had an excellent breakfast buffet the day that we were there. Nice size rooms that were very comfortable. I have stayed at other Hilton Garden Inns and this was by far the best.
Hilton was wonderful
We were delighted with this hotel. The front desk staff was friendly and
helpful, the lobby was bright and clean, the room was very nice , bright, clean and comfortable. The pool area was also nice. We were so pleased to find a such a nice hotel in a rather touristy area that we plan to return with family members next month.
Great place to stay in Gettysburg
Just got back from a great ovenight stay at this hotel a mile or so outside the Gettysburg city center. Hotel is new or newly renovated. Attractive public areas, large, clean, comfortable room with a large bathroom at a very good price. Able and attentive desk staff. Hotel pool and hot tub very nice.
Very comfortable stay
Happened upon this hotel while on vacation. We found the property extremely clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful in providing directions and suggestions for a good local place for meals. We would highly recommend this to anyone coming to the area and would be our first choice upon a return trip.
Great for one night in Gettysburg
We had a comfortable , clean room at this fairly new Hilton. It was in a perfect location. We didn't figure out the thermostat and the room was a little warm, and when I asked at check out I was told rather abruptly that if I had called the front desk they would have explained the proper use of the thermostat. The only other problem was when I went to pay cash for the room, I was told that they didn't have change, so I had to come up with exact dollars.
Stayed on August 7
An overnighter from Philadelphia. Clean property, close to major highways and a couple miles from town. Two breakfast choices; continental and hot buffet.
Convenient and Clean
We just got back. The Hilton was very clean and new. The restaurant, open for breakfast and dinner, was very good. The location was convenient, about one mile from Gettysburg and adjacent to a Giant supermarket.
We just returned from our stay at the Hilton Garden Inn in Gettysburg, PA. The hotel was very clean and the staff was really nice. The pool was small and the water cloudy when we were there. We found out though that the pool guy was off the prior week. Our kids still had fun in it and it was never busy. The hotel is quiet which we liked and we were able to check in 2 hours before the posted time. It's not in the heart of Gettysburg but only a 5 minute drive down the road. We could always find parking in town. The dining area is small but we never had a problem getting a seat. They do not serve lunch but we were never there during that time anyway. We would definitely stay there again.
Very clean with competent staff--a good value
We had a great stay at the Hilton Garden Inn. The staff was very friendly and competent and the hotel was immaculate. You do have to drive (very short trip--maybe 5 minutes) to get into town, but we had no trouble finding parking in the dead of winter (not a walkable trip, though). Small indoor pool, but the kids loved it, and it was the only one I was able to find that had an indoor pool. The pool was very clean. The view from the hotel is very ugly; our room at the front of the hotel looked out on a stretch of blight. But, I thought it was a good value for the money. Extremely clean, comfortable rooms, great staff, pretty and clean lobby. The hotel is right next to a supermarket and the rooms have refrigerators and microwaves, which was good for saving money on sodas and snacks. Gettysburg is a nice weekend getaway if you live nearby. 2 full days and a one-night stay was enough to tour the battlefield and see the town, and the hotel was a very nice home base. Note, coming from the direction of the town of Gettysburg, it is very easy to miss the entrance to the hotel. The post marking the hotel came after the intersection.
Very Nice New Property
A brand new property. Very friendly staff and nice facility. Beds are extremely comfortable. Only glitches were the high speed internet access was not working properly. I would absolutely recommend staying here.
